Slow Cooker Elvis Pudding Cake

Thank you for sharing!

Okay, all you Lilo & Stitch fans I have the perfect dessert for you, Elvis Pudding Cake! We all know how much our friend Lilo loves Elvis and I can’t agree more. Lilo & Stitch movie night just got even better. The second this pudding cake hits your tongue, you will realize you made the best decision ever!

This cake is loaded with creamy peanut butter, ripe bananas, pudding, chocolate chips, and topped with cold vanilla ice cream. You know that moment when you are eating a cake, and it is still warm, but the ice cream is starting to melt? Yep, this is precisely what happens, and it is absolutely scrumptious! 

Besides how incredible it tastes, I forgot to tell you the best part! It can be made right in your slow cooker. How amazing is that? It is a minimal effort with a huge reward. That is a big win in my book!

What Makes This An Elvis Pudding Cake?

If you love Elvis then you probably already know he was known for eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches. This cake has been made to remember Elvis and his love for peanut butter and bananas. On a side note, he also loved to add a little bacon to his sandwiches and often used bacon grease instead of butter when he grilled them. So, this might be pretty amazing with a few bits of cooked bacon sprinkled on top too!

Tips on How to Make this Cake Amazing

Alter the Cake Mix Recipe

To make a moister cake replace the water with milk and the oil with melted butter. Those are just two of my favorite ways to make a boxed cake taste better

Skip the Super Natural Peanut Butter

Though natural peanut butter may be a bit healthier, I have discovered the best peanut butter for baking is cheap peanut like a store brand. 

Choose Ripe Bananas

Though I don’t like super ripe bananas to eat if I am snacking on one, you want a just ripened banana for this recipe. The added sweetness kicks the recipe up to perfection. 

Optional Toppings For This Elvis Pudding Cake Recipe

Every bite of this pudding cake is fantastic! If you are like me, then you understand that sometimes it is fun to add in some extra ingredients. My husband and I like to try new things sometimes, and I thought you might like these ideas:

  • Whipped Cream – I know this dessert is already pretty sweet but isn’t everything better with a little dab of whipped cream? 
  • Candy Bars – Crush up your favorite candy bar and sprinkle a little bit on top or you can even add some in the cake. 
  • Caramel – Drizzle just a little bit on top of the ice cream because caramel goes with everything!
  • Nuts – Add some peanuts, almonds, cashews or any other nut to the top of the cake. I like the extra crunch they give. 

How Do I Store Leftover Pudding Cake?

If you have leftover pudding cake, you can store it in the refrigerator. While I love this cake when it is really warm, you will be surprised to know that it is also terrific cold. I skip the ice cream when I eat it cold, but it is seriously so good. While you can refrigerate the cake, I don’t really recommend putting it in the freezer. It doesn’t tend to age well, and the texture always seems to be a bit off. You can try it, and if you like it keep doing it, but I wouldn’t make a bunch just to freeze. 

Fun Facts About Elvis Presley

I know these tips have nothing to do with this yummy pudding cake, but I thought these facts were interesting and you might enjoy them. 

  1. When Elvis was eleven, his mom convinced him to buy his first guitar. What a smart mama!
  2. It cost Elvis $4 to have his first album recorded. 
  3. When given the opportunity to sing at a radio station, Elvis was too frightened to perform. Good thing he grew out of that! 
  4. The house he purchased named Graceland only cost $100,000! Can you imagine what that would be worth now?
